Abstract:

A method is presented which exploits the nearness to Gaussianity of velocity probability distributions in turbulence, by expanding the velocity field function about the Gaussian approximation. Many of the mathematical manifestations of the method are new that it is hard to obtain physical insight into them. Hence, a pilot project of a simplified nature is under taken which uses instead of the Navier-Stokes or MHD equations the Burgers one-dimensional model equation.
